I have no idea how you've lasted longer than a little while with the Tekken 6 stick. I murdered the shit out of that think in a couple of weeks.


If you don't mash and smash, it can last a bit... especially if you're not used to something like a TE... but it's easy to start feeling the buttons stick and such... I keep it around to let company use if we play fighters.

Yeah, I don't know if it will have the best quality but that's fine by me. I'm not too intense in fighting games and the only current stick I have is the wireless Tekken 6 one, which I know a lot of people said sucked. But mine's lasted for a while now and I feel that I do fine with it so I'm sure this one's better then that. I've mainly used the SF4 and MVC fightpads over sticks though, but I like having options because certain games feel better with each. Luckily, these games always have adjustable controls so I just set them to all be similar anyway, but I do know what you mean how there's a big difference from MK and Capcom games.


I was talking more about MK9 vs previous MK games. Yeah, it's still 4+block instead of 6 attack... but the moving of the punch button and the change of it to front/back kind of screwed me up -- especially since uppercut used to be down+[], roundhouse was back+/\, sweep was back+O... changing some of those really fucked with my head at first.

Lol, not sure I guess, I have almost all of my old controllers from every system still in working order though, I know I don't really smash buttons and such much. Recently my MVC3 fightpad is really the only controller I remember that actually stopped working, I've had some problems with sticking joysticks and stuff though, usually take the controllers apart and clean them to fix that though. I know I used the stick quite a bit, I'm happy it still works though, although I'll be glad to get an upgrade.

Gotcha, yeah I see how that stuff could be confusing, since you are used to that style of controls from the one series so you expect the newest game to stay like how they used to be.

Especially if you think about the layout from the fight stick in the MK9 $150 bundle.
Oh, this is like playing MK/MKII/UMK3? I want to uppercut.. so... I press down and the top left button... WTF?! Why is there a kick where low punch should be? OH! Uppercut is now basically down and high kick... son of a bitch. :P

And there's something about the combo strings and the way it was designed that it is optimal for the new setup -- cause I originally mapped everything to try to be like the original MK layout on my TE... didn't work so well for me.

Haha, yeah, there's an original MK cabinet in an arcade near me that has that layout. I haven't used the newer MK9 stick but that would be like learning the game over again with how the game plays.

I like how this one black guy manager at my nearest KFC rejected the chicken and told the employees to make me some new chicken. He understood how us black folks like our friend chicken fresh and not hard.


I love me some fried food. I eat friend food all the time and I'm still super skinny. I can eat all the friend chicken and other unhealthy foods never getting fat.:D

I'm sure you missed the dialogue achievement make sure you follow a guide or you won't get it



Is that the hidden one? If so, then I have to start a new game. Eh, half the trophies are multiplayer, and I don't see myself doing that...unless maybe one of my buddies gets it and we just play rounds between ourselves to get trophies.

There's three secret ones.
Kill a crab don't know why that's a secret. Shoot dynamite out of the air and talk to every member its like 7 dialogue pieces. There's casual and ranked matches and there's only one ranked achievement which is to win on every mode if you want that achievement you better play ranked now because its pretty much dead.

I'm actually having fun with the MP its not anything ground breaking but using the bow is fun and way OP

Oh, Jesus Christ. When they say "Origins", they better not mean, "Hey, we're going to show Bruce's parents dying and him transforming into Batman because nobody in our target audience has seen that, like, five times already, right?"


That was basically my exact thought process when I heard it. There doesn't need to be any continuity between batman games.

Maybe the story in Injustice will somehow open up the Arkhamverse more considering that in the end of the game

Wait is that an actual spoiler?

How do I borrow it? I've been looking on ebay for a limited edition of MGS 4.

Eh I'm just going to package this shit up and send it back everything is sealed and I don't want to open it.

I might give it a go, but I'm not really into competitive multiplayer. Come to think of it, I have never really been interested in stuff like that, even back in the day when I was running my own CS server. Especially now, I'd much rather see co-op, although I have a hard time even rustling up the energy to hop online with my buddy to keep playing BL2. I think its because he has way more time on his hands to put into the game than I do. He's got nearly all the classes past 30, and I only have 1 lvl 41 and 1 lvl 32. :p
